    You are better off to support Obama because he is the only one who can save our country. All others are just retarded prejudiced Americans.

    I want to be optimistic but I’m not holding my breath, don’t know why this seems to feel like a bleak day when it should be just like any other. I hope that America opens it eyes, and seeks to find real solutions to it’s problems and avoid recycled bad ideas that have been used in the past. Never hurts to wish I suppose…maybe we will find out way again.

    Barack Obama is going to become our nation best ever President. But be ready to work hard and make sacrifices. After 8 years of bad decisions and NOTHING accomplished, Obama is hope for all the world. Support our new President.

    Paul, Harry & Aaron,
    Your positive comments are what we all need to take to heart. Barack is raedy to lead. We as a people have to continue his lead with nonpartisan support. Long live the United States of America !

    I wait with eager anticipation of the official swearing in ceremonies of the 44th President of the United States of America. I wait to observe the glow surrounding the Messiah while he defies gravity and floats feet off of the ground while he recites the 35 words of the Oath of Office. Surely, as soon as the coronation ceremonies are over, he will raise his skinny little arms and all will be well in America and throughout the World ….. hell, the Universe for that matter. Upon completion of his miracles he shall surely ascend to Heaven and set at the right hand of God!

    I think I just had a bit of punk come up in my throat!

    Are you idiots so naive that you actually believe any of the crap you a spewing? It is politics as usual in Washington now as it will be in the future. Nothing more than the changing of the faces has taken place today.

    Obama is now the President of the United States of America and no one will defend the Office of The President more than I, however, that does not mean that I have to agree with the man or his politics. I hope for all of our sakes this guy does a dissent job …. If he doesn’t we are all in deep crap.

  20. 20 Conrad Jan 20th, 2009 at 4:03 pm

    Closer than you think,

    Ok so lets get some stuff straight here punk. I feel as if you are another one of those pencil necked peckerwood pricks that feels he knows more about politics than anyone around. Did you know that at one point in time Republicans were Democrats and Demorcrats were Republicans???? So if you think about it hard and long maybe you will see that the names Republican and Democrat does not matter right now. What matters is who is in office not if they are bald or if they have cute little jerry-curls like Obama has. So id watch who you call a pathetic windbag or whatever you said, thats way juvenile.


    You are an embareassment to me as an American. The Worlds laughs in our face because of stupid shits such as yourself. Did you see the little jerry curl momma jammas on TV today talking about how “they President is gonna change tha face fo America” and give them the free money and change that they want? Well maybe you are so fucking naive and stupid that you cannot even find your way to the parking lot on level 4 where your big rimmed Dodge Charger is sitting. Think smarter here not harder and try and imagine that no matter how much shit you talk you, in the end, will deny voting for Mr. Obama.

    Dennis Ridinger,

    Apparently you can tell that my father has followed the change just by the cars he drives and the bikes he builds. They are all first class, top notch, up to date pieces of art. How is that being a dinosaur you stupid, sorry son of a bitch. Go home, turn on the TV, look at the change we have to face now. Maybe once you get out of your 20s you will see that this has nothing to do with “age” anymore.


    Sorry but these people are so arrogant and naive that it makes me quiver while I try to express my free speech just like you and them. I feel as if this country has become so blind to the fact that Bush did have a bad approval rating but they dont stop to think that the Democrat run Congress was WAYY worse than his?

    Grow some balls, you now those things that hang below your penis, and write your REAL name. Dennis Ridinger I wont hammer you on this because you had the balls to write it. But for the rest of you grow up, grow those balls and then come back under your real name so you can be criticised like you criticise my father.

    So, now that I have voiced my thoughts for the people who have posted here, let me get to my thouhgts.

    As I watched the inauguration today I sat at my desk in disbeleif at the stupiditly of some people out there. Did you notice how they said GWB middle name? Cheyneys middle name? Bidens middle name? But did you see/hear when Obama came out that the speaker called him Barrack H. Obama? Maybe because the controversy following the name Hussein is such a new relative issue in America that we are not ready for someone of Muslim creed? Hell I do not know, there are thousands of questions I could ask at this point but I know it is too late. We have to face what we have on our political plates now and what we have on our plates as Americans. We must follow what our new leader does and give him the utmost respect that he deserves. We may not agree with what he says or does but we must not quiver and hide under a rock because we have fear of what is to come. I have faith in our new President and I have faith in our strenghts as Americans. I feel we need not worry about what shape we are in right now but what shape we will be in one year, two years, three years down the road.

    Show respect towards eachother on the streets, at our desks or hell even on this blog. Remember this, we may not all be white or republicans but we are all here with one thing in common, We love motorcycles. Most of us are even Americans. So quit the shit and grow up. Lets get back to talk about bikes.


  21. 21 Conrad Jan 20th, 2009 at 4:06 pm

    Watch again,

    Shut the fuck up. Watch and listen to Obama recite the Oath. He clearly fucked up 2 or 3 times.I understand he may have been excited or whatever but its still easy to repeat some words. So YOU grow up or YOU get out of the way.

  22. 22 harry Jan 20th, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    To John K.: I wasn’t necessarily being positive, hope it wasn’t a misleading comment–I am still a little skeptical and a bit cynical. If he can deliver the goods and lead us to peace, prosperity and TRUE freedom, then more power to him. The bad thing is that we don’t have any leaders left in America anymore, just politicans. As I mentioned to someone before that went on a Bush-Bashing tirade, forget about the “established” politicans that are already polluted and corrupt, elect your Dad, Uncle, neighbor, etc…instead. We need to make a real change in our country and it can’t be anything based on catchy phrases and empty promises. It is safe to say that America is in a slumber and if we don’t wake up from it soon, well it will be too late. Just my opinion for what it’s worth, good or bad…

  25. 25 Nicker Jan 20th, 2009 at 6:48 pm

    Paul & Arron,

    Your belief that BO is gonna be the “best President ever” and “only one who can save us”
    is based on exactly what facts…… ????

    I’ve previously posted OB’s entire exact quote on judicial selection on this blog.
    (not going to dig it out again)

    However, let me explain something very simple to you both…

    A president who has said that he will select Judges base on their empathy with “pregnant teen mothers,” the Global community, and the “poor” either misunderstands the constitutional principles under which the Judicial branch is supposed to operate, or he has an agenda that is, at it’s very foundation, unconstitutional.

    Moreover, bearing in mind that virtually all the BO ad visors up to this point are Ex Clinton people, it begs the question:
    Exact;y what type of “Change” is it that you-all are looking for…..????

    IMHO, most of such ignorance can be put at the feet of a Liberal school system that’s more interested in social engineering than Academic achievement.


  26. 26 Nicker Jan 20th, 2009 at 7:00 pm


    “… years to really turn this around…”

    Dude, if BO goes down the same path as FDR (if history is any criterion then it will be at least 7 years….

    Moreover, no one knows exactly how much longer than that, because FDR had the advantage of WW-II to get the problem solved for him.

    I’ll be quite honest, if he is indeed the Socialist he seems to be,
    i hope he fails so miserably that the do-nothing congress will finally get off their Ass and keep his hands tied till he can be replaced.

    Otherwise, the best of luck to him.
    But selling of the private sector (be it banks tor car companies, etc.) to the government, isn’t the solution to bolstering any free market system.

He said that he ALSO wish that they have empahy for…. NO, what he said is profoundly constitutional..

    “Moreover, bearing in mind that virtually all the BO advisors up to this point are Ex Clinton people, it begs the question: Exact;y what type of “Change” is it that you-all are looking for…..????”. FALSE, there are republicans & in majority democrats who didn’t serve under Clinton. They are advisors, Obama is decision maker.

    The change we hope? A president who don’t go to unjustified wars, who think that capitalism needs a minimum of regulation to avoid excesses, who reform the healthcare system, who doesn’t violate the Geneva covention, etc, who understands We The People.

    “… Your positive comments are what we all need…”

    Sorry, “positive comments” in a poor political situation are about as worthless as
    “self esteem” is to a failing student.

    What is needed is positive action.
    The kind of action that business can deliver.

    Let’s hope BO can pull it off.
    Looks like were about to see if a political activist can pull it off.

    But it don’t look good.

    No Gitmo prisoner gave useful info. They will not be go to trial in the US because they were tortured (read the news: you don’t trial somebody who has been tortured in violation of the Geneva Convention). Most were already sent back to their respective countries. No attack is because of border protection, Nothing to do with Gitmo.

    Look Dude, don’t piss on my boots and then try convincing me it’s raining……..

    “… Geneva and water boarding….. etc. etc. etc…..”

    Basically, your talking to someone who was born into the smoking rubble of WW-II Europe, and is a two tour Vietnam combat vet. No body in their right mind likes to go to war. Some are simply unavoidable.

    However, the Realty of the world is this:
    No one ever won a war based on any “conventions.”
    Wars are won be sheer brutality.
    I’ll personally drown 4 GitMo detainees in a toilet bowel, in front of the rest, if it’ll get enough intel to stop another 9/11.

    Regarding the economy:
    Free Market economics works when all the rules are followed and all the overnight is conducted.
    It doesn’t work when external forces are allowed to dabble in socially engineer exercises.
    (see Barney Frank et al)

    Remember this:
    “Fairness” was a term originally coined by the Meek, in a feeble attempt to inherit the earth.
    But Nature doesn’t work that way.

    I think that covers it………. 🙂

  34. 34 Sam Jan 20th, 2009 at 11:52 pm

    Obama is hype, not hope. Barack Obama and Democrats blame the historic financial turmoil on the market. But if it’s dysfunctional, Democrats during the Clinton years are a prime reason for it. Obama blamed the shocking new round of subprime-related bankruptcies on the free-market system, and specifically the “trickle-down” economics of the Bush administration, which he tried to gig opponent John McCain for wanting to extend.

    But it was the Clinton administration, obsessed with multiculturalism, that dictated where mortgage lenders could lend, and originally helped create the market for the high-risk subprime loans now infecting like a retrovirus the balance sheets of many of Wall Street’s most revered institutions.

    Tough new regulations forced lenders into high-risk areas where they had no choice but to lower lending standards to make the loans that sound business practices had previously guarded against making. It was either that or face stiff government penalties.

    The untold story in this whole national crisis is that President Clinton put on steroids the Community Reinvestment Act*, a well-intended Carter-era law designed to encourage minority homeownership. And in so doing, he helped create the market for the risky subprime loans that he and Democrats now decry as not only greedy but “predatory.”

    Yes, the market was fueled by greed and overleveraging in the secondary market for subprimes, vis-a-vis mortgaged-backed securities traded on Wall Street. But the seed was planted in the ’90s by Clinton and his social engineers. They were the political catalyst behind this slow-motion financial train wreck.

    And it was the Clinton administration that mismanaged the quasi-governmental agencies that over the decades have come to manage the real estate market in America.

    As soon as Clinton crony Franklin Delano Raines took the helm in 1999 at Fannie Mae, for example, he used it as his personal piggy bank, looting it for a total of almost $100 million in compensation by the time he left in early 2005 under an ethical cloud.

    Other Clinton cronies, including Janet Reno aide Jamie Gorelick, padded their pockets to the tune of another $75 million.

    Raines was accused of overstating earnings and shifting losses so he and other senior executives could earn big bonuses.

    In the end, Fannie had to pay a record $400 million civil fine for SEC and other violations, while also agreeing as part of a settlement to make changes in its accounting procedures and ways of managing risk.

    But it was too little, too late. Raines had reportedly steered Fannie Mae business to subprime giant Countrywide Financial, which was saved from bankruptcy by Bank of America.

    At the same time, the Clinton administration was pushing Fannie and her brother Freddie Mac to buy more mortgages from low-income households.

    The Clinton-era corruption, combined with unprecedented catering to affordable-housing lobbyists, resulted in today’s nationalization of both Fannie and Freddie, a move that is expected to cost taxpayers tens of billions of dollars.

    And the worst is far from over. By the time it is, we’ll all be paying for Clinton’s social experiment, one that Obama hopes to trump with a whole new round of meddling in the housing and jobs markets. In fact, the social experiment Obama has planned could dwarf both the Great Society and New Deal in size and scope.

    There’s a political root cause to this mess that we ignore at our peril. If we blame the wrong culprits, we’ll learn the wrong lessons. And taxpayers will be on the hook for even larger bailouts down the road.

    But the government-can-do-no-wrong crowd just doesn’t get it. They won’t acknowledge the law of unintended consequences from well-meaning, if misguided, acts.

    Obama and Democrats on the Hill think even more regulation and more interference in the market will solve the problem their policies helped cause. For now, unarmed by the historic record, conventional wisdom is buying into their blame-business-first rhetoric and bigger-government solutions.

    While government arguably has a role in helping low-income folks buy a home, Clinton went overboard by strong-arming lenders with tougher and tougher regulations, which only led to lenders taking on hundreds of billions in subprime bilge.

    Market failure? Hardly. Once again, this crisis has government’s fingerprints all over it.

    Meet the New Boss

    I just finished subjecting myself to the nauseating experience of
    listening to a bunch tyrant propaganda, also known as the
    “inaugural ceremonies,” celebrating the coronation of Barrack Obama
    as the new King of America. (To call him a “President” would imply
    that this is still a constitutional republic, and that there are
    limits on what “government” can do to us. It’s not, and there
    aren’t, so I’ll call him what he is: a king.)

    In short, as in every such ridiculous exhibitions of authority-
    worship, there was a long stream of lies, and not a speck of truth
    to be found. In the preliminary bunk, Diane Feinstein, subject-
    disarmer and communist extraordinaire, was nice enough to inform us
    all that “the freedom of the people to choose their leaders” is the
    heart of liberty. That one insane sentence deserves many pages of
    rebuttal, but for now I’ll just say: to call those who forcibly
    control you “leaders” is insane, and it is utterly idiotic to think
    that choosing WHICH person will enslave you counts as being free.

    Even the “invocation” had a fair number of similar insane
    contradictions, such as the pastor hoping that Obama will “lead us
    with humility.” How, exactly, can someone who wants to rule the
    world, and who thinks he has the right to forcibly rob and control
    the rest of us, do so with “humility”? What a looney notion. The
    pastor further hoped aloud that we would show “civility in our
    attitudes, even when we differ.” By itself, that would be fine, but
    in the context of appointing someone to use the VIOLENCE of the
    state to COERCE us all into doing what HE wants, it’s a little
    beyond hypocritical. For example, the thugs in the federal
    government and I “differ” on where the money I earn should be
    spent. Most of you know how “civil” they were in dealing with that
    difference of opinion (if you don’t, go buy my book at, and the Obama regime will be no
    different. The pastor also opined that as Americans, we are united
    by our “commitment to freedom.” That was a little much to take,
    considering that he was surrounded by the biggest club of
    megalomaniac control freaks on the planet, while throngs of stupid
    peasants cheered at the prospect of their own enslavement.

    Then came the main course: the king himself, lying through his
    teeth about what he believes, what he wants, and what he intends to
    do. Like a good tyrant, he constantly used words like “we,” “us”
    and “our” (about a hundred times in the relatively short speech).
    He spoke of “the task before us,” and “the challenges we face.”
    Most bizarrely, he spoke about what great things “free men and
    women can achieve.”
    I’m sorry that the American people are so stupid that this needs to
    be explained (again), but “government” is not about cooperating, or
    working together, and it certainly isn’t about free people doing
    anything. It is about one relatively small group of people, a
    RULING class, FORCIBLY robbing and controlling everyone else,
    coercing them into behaving the way the masters want them to

    I suspect that lots of critics will harp on the merely stupid
    things Obama did, like saying that “forty-four Americans have now
    taken the oath” of office (apparently the guy has never heard of re-
    elections), or botching up the oath. But his stupidity is not what
    scares me, and is not what should scare you. His worship of
    authority, disdain for the individual, and plans to enslave the
    planet are what should scare you. Of course, he doesn’t use those
    terms to describe what he plans on doing. He talks about the market
    needing to be controlled by the “watchful eye” of government. He
    speaks out against “greed and irresponsibility,” which again means
    government taxes and government regulation. And he came pretty
    close to coming right out and admitting that he intends to rob you,
    to give handouts to the rest of the world. He also couldn’t resist
    saying, “as much as government can do, and must do,” before saying
    how the people can accomplish stuff. And, just to throw in a touch
    of fascism to the otherwise purely socialist tone of the rant, he
    talked about “loyalty and patriotism,” the “spirit of service.”

    Talk about “irrational exuberance.” Well, as I fish for something
    optimistic to say here, all I can think of is this: I hope all
    those duped people REMEMBER how excited, enthusiastic and
    optimistic they feel right now. When their messiah ends up being
    just another destructive crook who further exploits and robs the
    country, maybe they’ll figure out that some things matter more than
    charisma and “hope.” Then again, they probably won’t.

    The blatent disregard for the economic times by Obabma with a 100 million dollar ceremony that took all of 20 minutes is inexcusable.And so what if some of the money came from private sources! I ASK WHAT SOURCES AND WHAT DID THEY GET IN RETURN? The money wasted on the ceremony could have funded Head Start Programs and college money for 1000’s of people.Or how about helping the people that are losing their homes? The only change I see so far is his spending habits. You would have thought Jesus was coming to town. I don’t like him and I think we are in for a big awakening when he institutes his socialistic POLICIES and the U.S.A. looks like Russia with NO FREE ENTERPRISE and we no longer have a FREE MARKET SOCIETY. I smell Regulation upon Regulation with small businesses going right dow the toilet.
    All the people that voted for him are in for a rude awakening.
    Is he a Muslim- I think so! Is his middle name Hussien “YES”
    He is ready to sit down at the table with the very people that are responsible for KILLING INNOCENT AMERICANS.And by the way comparing his wife to Jackie Kennedy is Bullshit!

    Once again I am with you. The memories of the cattle are very short, I guess they forgot that a couple thousand people burned to death in the towers, but that wasn’t torture, well, not for long anyway.

    I see a lot of people relying on one man to make everything perfect and well again.
    What if he dies-is everyone going to fall into a state of despair?

    What are YOU doing to help make a difference?

    Anyone can talk, whine and complain but what is needed is ACTION not discussion.

    You can start by checking where the products you purchase are made.
    Try to purchase products manufactured locally if possible-I know that’s really hard because almost everything in every large store is made in China.

    But if enough people insist on THE CHOICE at least to purchase local products then maybe so many people won’t lose their jobs in the near future.

    You CAN make a difference!

    Conrad – thank you for your response, it was hilarious.

    A short time ago I would have been offended and outraged at the paranoia and racism being spewed here. Today, I just find it amusing all these ignorant people are so terrified because they know their time is up.

    the most disturbing thing about this election is that the whole platform of obama was to tax people to get ahead. those are the people that pay most all taxes anyway and do most of the hiring. could you in your wildest dreams think that a president in america could excite voters by saying more taxes are the way to go. socialism is here

  51. 51 harry Jan 21st, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    I have said it before and I think that it is especially true now: Most Americans have become lazy and dependent on others, mainly our gov’t and their willingness to dole out aide to the ones that don’t want to do anything for it. As time passes people think that gov’t is the one to cure our ills. It isn’t, gov’t, especially at the federal level needs to reduce their footprint and just let things be. More gov’t is the problem, less is the solutions. I don’t want them to keep taking away my money cause they can’t manage it, give it to people that don’t want to work for it, or pay for something that I will never get. Pres. Obama believes in “wanting to help people out that have less”, but there are two different ways to do that–you can either give them tons of gov’t aide at taxpayer expense and basically enslave them or you can sit back and let people enable themselves to make it in this world on their own. I am for the latter, cause you are going to do one or two things: sink or swim. Some people might call this “Republican Bullshit” but it is the furthest thing from it. That is what America was regardless of party affiliation, my parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, that is how they made it in this country. Work hard, be smart w/ what you have and live within your means and plan for the future. I agree that one man can inspire, but it is up to the ones that do become inspired to do it on their own and go foward and succeed on their own. If friends and family give you a hand up on your path to success in life that is fine but that is the way it should be, not from the gov’t and not at any cost to John or Jane Q Citizen. Just my opinion, and I am ready for the attacks to come…

  52. 52 Pepper Jan 21st, 2009 at 12:30 pm

    I’m with you Cyril – anything is possible.
    We seem to have forgotten that if we pull together as a country we can achieve great things. There is a lot of work to be done by all of us. Let’s stop saying it can’t be done and get focused on what can be done, and do it.

  53. 53 Mike Kiwi Tomas, Kiwi Indian MotorCycles Jan 21st, 2009 at 4:34 pm

    On Jan 29th 2009 I will be sworn in as an American Citizen. I have always thought of the United States of America being “UNITED”. I’d like to believe it is that way.

  54. 54 Marilyn Stemp Jan 21st, 2009 at 4:51 pm

    Congrats Kiwi, on your new citizenship. Glad to have you on board, mate!
    You should feel proud that you have acted on your beliefs, in stark contrast to the many do-nothings who think they’re patriotic because they sling their skewed opinions and insults at other people on blogs…

  55. 55 Conrad Jan 21st, 2009 at 4:56 pm

I join Marilyn in welcoming you to your new citizenship here in the USA. Maybe we’ll run into each other at the V-Twin Expo. I’ll buy you a beer to celebrate “Hope over fear “.

    i am an employer , when you are an employee you view a taxation political platfrom alot differently than a biz person who will have to pay it. thats where it can be ( i hope i dont have to fear him ) instead of maybe an employee only hears hope instead of fear.
    remamber this is just a blog. why would we need a blog if everyone was a robot thinking one way.

  60. 60 Cade Jan 21st, 2009 at 11:09 pm

    obama picks Timothy Geithner as the Treasury Secretary and the asshole hasn’t paid his taxes…
    This motherfucker shouldn’t even be considered but Obama who is going to save the US says Geithner should be the Treasury Secretary.
    Timothy Geithner, tries to assure lawmakers that he is fit for the post.

    Geithner hit a snag after revelations that Geithner, currently the head of the Federal Reserve’s New York regional bank, failed to pay $34,000 in taxes several years ago when he worked for the International Monetary Fund.

    Obama on Wednesday labeled the disclosures about Geithner an embarrassment but said it was an “innocent mistake” that should not bar Geithner from the Treasury job.

    Well at least a lot of you idoits beleive Obama is just what America needs. Your in good company tho. Today Fidel Castro approved of Obama being good for everyone.Wonder why ?

    Obama accidentally let it slip to reporters that Fidel Castro paid a one billion dollar contribution to his campaign contingent on the new President getting the United States to abandon Guantanamo Bay within a year.

  61. 61 Cade Jan 21st, 2009 at 11:37 pm

    Thanks for the clock Jeff. I’ll be watching it regularly for sure.

  62. 62 Conrad Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:31 am


    Our new President bright? YES, very much so and that is one reason he is President.
    Honest? Are you out of your fucking mind???? He is a POLITICIAN; he is not honest for shit. Have you not seen on the News lately at all the people who voted for him that are already pissed off because he is started to back out of several things he “promised” for change?
    I’m sorry but there is no such thing as an honest politician and you are plain arrogant if you think there is. Besides that, in 4 years I hope there has been a change for the better if so then I welcome another 4 for him. But remember its not the first 4 years we should worry about, he wants to be re-elected he wont mess up too bad. The second 4 years is what we will have to worry about, he doesn’t need to think about being re-elected.

    Watch Again,

    Stop posting all of this bullshit stuff about racism. Blacks are the most racist of all and have no right to be nor do we. They bitch about the “injustices” done to them as “African Americans” which makes no sense. Come on slavery has been over for what, almost 140 years? I’ve never seen or heard of an African American being beat or whipped or any such thing for that matter in my life. So, for that I am sorry that you think I am being racist or whoever else, I don’t see it. I see freedom of speech and the pussication of America.

    Whatever happened to freedom of speech anyways? Does freedom of speech mean you can say WHATEVER YOU WANT? YES. Our Founding Fathers wrote that as top priority in our Constitution because that is was signifies us as Americans, the Freedom of Will. But now we have the bitch slapped American people out there on TV, in stores, magazines, etc saying we must follow their lead on life. So we can not speak freely anymore without having to worry about being called a Racist or Sexual harassment charges being slapped on us. I am sick and tired of people saying “I’m going to sue you” just because they don’t like the way you come across when they want to argue about words. I’m tired of kids not being able to be kids and play free in the street or front yard without their mom or dad being there in a lawn chair telling anyone that drives by to “slow the fuck down”, even when they go the speed limit. I am tired of moms waiting at the bus stops to make sure the other kids don’t “play around with each other” and hurt her son.
    I’m done with talking to you all about this mindless bullshit which has so negatively surrounded Americans. Racism is relevant in all cultures, White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, etc. I’m tired of being called “Racist” because I simply do not like Obama.

  63. 63 Conrad Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:32 am

    Im going to watch The Kingdom now and remind myself that our new President is not our enemy.

  64. 64 A$$HOLE Jan 22nd, 2009 at 5:16 am

    AMEN Conrad! Apparently whites are the only group capable of being racists! Every one else is just “culturally aware”, like Michelle Osama.

  65. 65 Gerald Jan 22nd, 2009 at 5:38 am

    Cade. Timothy Geithner is qualified for the job, Period. Fidel Castro gave 1 billion dollars to Obama??? What do you smoke?, You are crazy.

    Jeff: Watch your clock and lose weight. You don’t have 4 years, but 8 years to lose your extra fat. You bet?

    I support Obama 200%.

  66. 66 Cade Jan 22nd, 2009 at 8:56 am

    More Boos Than Balls
    It will not be easy for President B. Hussein Obama. More than half the country voted for him, and yet our newspapers are brimming with snippy remarks at every little aspect of his inauguration. And Tmothy Geithner isn’t reqired to pay taxes yet be in charge of the Treasury Dept. Gerald you have shit in your neck.

  67. 67 Gerald Jan 22nd, 2009 at 9:58 am

    Cade. Timothy Geithner already paid his back taxes. Last poll: 80% support Obama. His name is Barack Hussein Obama, not Hussein Obama. You are a liar (what about your 1 billion dollars given by Castro to Obama?) and a racist. We have now the most intelligent & honest President ever. And of course, you can’t stand it because you can’t understand intelligence. And I add that I am white, high income and will probably pay more taxes. I don’t care because it’s for my country and my children future.

  68. 68 Gina Woods Jan 22nd, 2009 at 10:22 am

    Mike Tomas – Congratulations on your US Citizenship! I too would like to beive that things will turn around for the better before it gets worse ..I too would also like to believe that we are all United ….damn if we don’t help each other…. then what?
    It won’t be an overnite fix -time will tell- until then I hope the natives can remain civil..

  69. 69 Jeff Nicklus Jan 22nd, 2009 at 11:12 am

    I find it most interesting that Osama Obama’s first day on the job he finds the most pressing issue in America to be the closing of Gitmo, stopping the trials of terrorists and closing the CIA camps around the world. Man do I feel more secure today knowing that! What about the economy STUPID!

    Mike Tomas. Congratulations brother and welcome.

    Gerald …. I can lose weight but you can not over come your looks … you will still will be ugly 4 or 8 years from now.

    Over & Out,


  70. 70 mike Jan 22nd, 2009 at 11:14 am

    although by watching the news it would seem like the new president won by a landslide. actually if i am not wrong 46% voted the other way, so you will have mixed feelings about your candidate not winning. most republicans are of the type of person that wishes to succeed in life without goverment intervention. ( like how america was built ) you may be able to understand the emotions brought out when a candidate says his policy is to share the wealth of people who earn more or willing to work harder. i also understand that the democrat voter base is generally the people who want goverment intervention and for some, financial support. there are good things about each party and without a two party system we would be in deep sh-t. president obama you will have to admit is a incredible motivational speaker and has great dreams. i will keep an open mind about our new chief and see how it goes. america definately needs great leadership right now.

    thumbs up kiwi, glad to have you in the bike world and the us

  71. 71 Democrat voted Republican Jan 22nd, 2009 at 11:53 am

    This was the first time in 35 years I voted for a Republican President. We all knew this country was in trouble financially, morally, and war weary. John McCain made a bold step in picking a running mate of unknown stature. It was a gamble, it failed. But, I believed in my heart that McCain, through all his life experiences, and sacrifices for our country, truely, would never turn his back on us.
    He was up against a truly “messiah” invented opponent. It was unreal to see so many people looking up at the “hope” on the platform on 01/20/2009. I believe his speech was from the heart, and knows he has a huge responsibility on his back, because of the “messiah” press coverage. When I listened to McCains concession speech, I then really saw the man who should be President. I’ve been a democrat all my life, and I was never more embarrassed by our press or public opinion of how this man was treated while running.
    Wether it was McCain or Barack, we will all be making sacrifices in our futures. Heck, I’m making them now! I wanted experience, a man who drove a different path in controversy with his party, and a man that knew the pains of war. I don’t know if Barack is that man.
    Remember a few things for 2009. When you watch T.V. or go to bed at night. There are no bombs falling on you, there are no people breaking into your home and beheading you for Allah. Your starbucks cappucino attitudes would certainly be gone quickly if this was to come to pass. Your economy would surely be in shambles without security. George Bush was no fan of mine. But, he was truly concerned for our safety of this country, and he did that job magnificantly. No man can watch all of whats happening in this country. That you need to rely on others, who miserably failed him in coating their pockets with our moneyand greed. WE will fix this wether it was McCain or Barack.
    I wish Barack the hope of this land, I hope no one fails him, and I hope to God he keeps our country safe. As JFK said, ” Forgive thy enemy, but never forget them.” Barack remember that quote, when you start dealing with a religion that has no place for Christians in their faiths.

  72. 72 Bobby Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:00 pm

    Mike. You are an open minded republican. Congrats. It doesn’t matter the vote % anymore. What is important is that today 80% of Americans support Obama.

    Jeff. You have difficulties to understand the news. What you state is false. Guantanamo will be closed (good), each prisoner case will be reviewed. The innocents (kept years without lawyers & proof of anything) will be sent back to their respective countries, the others will go to trials in the US. Stop making false statements like your candidates McCain/Palin during the campaign. The GOP is devastated, understanding nothing about today’s world, economy and foreign policy. Like you, just a narrow minded Texan who still doesn’t understand how Bush/Cheney destroyed our country and our reputation all around the world. Obama is too intelligent for your league.

  73. 73 Bobby Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:17 pm

    To Jeff, Conrad, Greenwald, Cade, etc.

    “Saad Muhammad Iqbal is a free man after serving more than six years at the U.S. military’s detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba — without any charge. Now, Iqbal is suing the U.S. government for unlawful detention. “I am angry in my heart,” Iqbal said in a recent interview. “It’s easy for the U.S. government to say, ‘There are no charges found and he’s free.’ “But who will be responsible for seven years of my life?” His attorney in Washington, D.C., is suing the U.S. government, on behalf of Iqbal, through the federal court system. It is not the first lawsuit brought against the U.S. government by a former Guantanamo detainee. But it comes as President Barack Obama takes office, promising to shut down the detention facility, possibly within a year. That could lead to an increase in the number of lawsuits brought by former detainees who — like Iqbal — say they were held for no reason”

    Congratulations, Bush/Cheney.

  74. 74 Conrad Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:23 pm


    Well how about this; What about all the other people in there who are PROVEN criminals and terrorits? Good call dick weed.

  75. 75 mike Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:24 pm

    bobby, thanks for the good wordsabout being open minded. i think you are challenged in that way. please do you homework about who ruined this country. please finf out how b.clinton was the one who set in place policy to allow even risky home loans as to insure that all americans can own a home. look what that situation is now. some people keep bringing up katrina as a bush failure. please remember that the state effected was totally controlled by democrats who blunders and fought for power during that terrible time at the cost of lives. donr forget the hundreds of buses left in the parking lot by demos. hillary voted for the war because she and bill knew very well what sadam had. no question. liberals made sure that sadam had a decade to clean out his house.
    we heard so much about halliburton. hell clinton used them extensively

    as i am open minded i will move on and hope for the best. for close minded people. please do all your homework and realize that both partys have real dirty hands

  76. 76 mike Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    i am spelling challenged when wound up, thanks need to do spell ck.

  77. 77 Conrad Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:29 pm


    Also, if you think Obama is too intellegent for my father to keep up you are way past wrong. Look at my fathers educational history. Its YOUR President who has embareassed us around the World. His “people” on live TV in front of the whole World speaking ebonics. Come on, thats embareassing. I understand Obama can speak very well in public but what you must understand is Congress in the end makes the decisions. The President doesnt have as much power as everyone thinks. Its people like you that dont understand that it wasnt Bush at fault, he was just a scapegoat for the Democrat run Congress. Yes Bush made some bad choices but if it werent for the Democrat run Congress we wouldnt be nearly as bad as we are now.

  78. 78 Bobby Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:34 pm

    Conrad. You are an idiot, like your father. Nobody knows if anyone was proven guilty in Guantanamo. How can you be proven guilty when there is not trial, no judgment, no lawyer?

  79. 79 Jeff Nicklus Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:38 pm


    I am confused …. what did I say that was false? Osama wants to close Gitmo, he signed an order yesterday as his first official act as President stopping trials of the detainees at Gitmo and working to close the base in the next 14 months and he ordered the CIA camps around the world to stand down …. that is true and as I stated. Nothing misleading, nothing false.

    Further, the lawsuits mean nothing nor will any of these idiots ever receive a dime. I say shoot all those MF’s and let Alah figure it out ….. then close Gitmo.

    One more thing numb nuts … everyone there (at Gitmo) will or has received a military trial …. Just before we shoot them in their head!

    Over & Out,


  80. 80 Conrad Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:45 pm

    You may want to watch what you say on here. If you want to bring my dads “weight” into this you need to remember how it would feel if I brought your wife or kids or even yourself into this. Keep those thoughts to yourself and dont attack him personally for no reason like that. But then again, unlike me, you wouldnt have the balls to say that in person just like any Democrat so owell. We dont give a shit about your children and their “future” they wont make it far if they act like you and for that I will pray for them. But sadly 99% of the time the children are a product of their environment, they dont have a chance.

    Also, you bring racism and money into it?

    Lets see, is a high income to you like 50k or 60k a year? lol. I bet you are an employee of some company and think their worth is way beyond what it is. Paying taxes to support the people who dont work and brag about thinking you pay more than Cade? Way to be immature YET AGAIN. You use my dads weight and your “money” as leverage because you cant furthur your argument with relevant facts?

  81. 81 Jeff Nicklus Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:46 pm


    One more thing ….. Dude unless you still live at home with your Mommy … drop the “by” on the end of your name …. be a BOB or a Robert ….. not “Bobby”.

    Just a thought.

    Over & Out,


    PS: I am finished with this subject now. I truly wish President Obama well and I hope he does a good job …. we need it!

  82. 82 Conrad Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:52 pm

    Sadly its you that is the idiot here. Out of the 349 KNOWN detainees at Gitmo 341 of them have had alleged Trials which have proven them to be charged with whatever the act may have been. The other 8 I dont have a clue about nor do I care, the news didnt say anything about them this morning. I say they have had their trial. Its time to take out the .223 and spend atleast 341 rounds and let Allah sort out the mess. They want to meet Allah so bad, lets let them meet him.

    But then again I feel they should all be spent anyways. They are obviously there for a reason charged or not we wont just place them there because we are in a bad mood. Casualties of War, it happens everyday.

  83. 83 Conrad Jan 22nd, 2009 at 12:53 pm

    Im done as well. Just like the Government, we are being over ruled by stupid, mindless Democrats which feel they must blame the Republicans for everything.
